Remotely control the TV over the internet

I have Verizon FOIS and want to be able to turn on my TV for a few hours when I am not home so my cat can watch it

any ideas on a easy way to turn on and control my tv over the internet ?

If you obtain a device such as the Logitech Harmony Hub that should be possible. I remote control my TV like that. If you combine it with an Android TV (or Apple TV) then you'll get even more options for what to watch or how to control the TV.

I also combine my Harmony with Alexa so that I can use voice commands to turn it on along with my Playstation or stereo or whatever.
